A must go destination in Kerala. Need to climb a lot up. But after this strenuous exercise, to reach top, you will feel really rejuvenated on feeling the breeze over there. Take care while climbing up the cave.

We are really very happy to say that this is one of the most beautiful places in Wayanad. Everything about this place is magical, right from atmosphere to food to scenery. But the one thing that makes this place worth visiting is the people.

The carvings inside the cave are remarkable. I've never seen anything similar. A short hike up to the entrance, with some steep steps but if you are reasonable fit then not a problem. Definitely worth the hike. Watch out for monkeys who are looking for food.

We will be rewarded with some beautiful sight of hills,phantom rock & karaphuza dam from the top.historical pictorial carvings can be seen in the caves.It can be called a trek as considerable walking and climbing steps is involved to reach the caves.

There are two caves very difficult to climb as the road is very stiff and should be avoided by people with heart and other critical diseases. The lower cave is small whereas the upper caave is large enough having various type of inscription showing the way how those people were living. These caves were not known earlier byt the British...

Long walk and steep walk up towards caves, very well maintained by govt. Only visit if interested in history. There are Engravings done.

To go uup its too difficult, and the steel stairs which the government made are small at one point of time, when people who are coming to the caves and those going back have to make one single line and go up, inside the caves its amazing, but nothing like the caves we have in Cherrapunji in India
